Yearly Wellness Visits – What’s allowed and what’s not?
I recently had a customer call me to ask why Medicare covered her yearly wellness visit but denied the lipid panel that she got after the appointment. Of course she was not happy about this. I don’t want any of you to experience a bill that you did not expect to see because you didn’t understand the rules of Medicare. Here is a link to help you understand just what Medicare does and does not cover when it comes to your Wellness Exam. https://blog.medicaremadeclear.com/physical-exam-wellness-visit-what-medicare-covers-2/
In addition there’s a resource that you can access anytime you have questions called www.medicare.gov. At this site you can type in any topic you want to know about in the Search bar and you will find ample amounts of information that you may want to know prior to scheduling a procedure or getting services done that you are just not sure about. In this case, you can go to www.medicare.gov and type “preventive services” in the Search bar. You will find all the information you need about this topic.
